Life is too short and the garage is too full!  After building several street rods, this was a five year attempt to build my version of the “Ultimate” ’40 Ford street rod pickup. With the help of many talented friends, I am pleased to say, it resulted in what you see… a NSRA T-shirt car, a Goodguy’s “Coolest” pick, a Portland Roadster Show Best in Class (Radical Custom Street Rod Pickup) winner, a Napa calendar car, a display case full of trophies and what I thought was the best, the comment from the “George Barris” “Pretty darn cool truck, guy!”  The drive train is straight forward, a blueprinted 355″Chevy small block, a built 350 Turbo trans, a “Fatman” tubular independent coil over front end with power rack and pinion steering, power disc brakes.  A parallel sprung 3:50 Ford 9″ with sway bar and power disc, all on Weld billet wheels.     The real labor of love (and expense) was in the all steel body modifications.  Shaved front bumper, custom front grille center, a peaked with extended sides hood (for flush fit), filled cowl vent, 3″ chopped windshield with v-butted glass, a “Carson” lift off padded top covering an integrated roll bar (all fits in the bed), suicide doors, power windows,  10 1/2″ extended cab, all custom sculpted tweed interior (look close for the designs), milled aluminum “Dakota Digital” dash, tilt wheel, remote opening doors, bed cover, side opening metal padded bed cover, over a totally hand fabricated, tubbed, (with hidden lower tool/battery storage) bed with modified passenger car rear fenders, hand fabricated 8 light rear flush mounted tail lights over a frenched rear rolled pan.  I didn’t want it to look obvious but every panel has been modified one way of another on this truck.   All topped out with super body work and PPG Royal Twilight Pearl paint with air brushed “Asphalt” flamed graphics.  With five years of constant work and 25 years of money, this truck has more than met all of my expectations.
